Sublime gelato
"We named the new flavor Holy Popes. It’s a combination of sweet milk, cream, and pieces of candy. It is a very sweet flavor in honor of the sweet character of these two popes, who we remember with fondness.” 

The gelateria is located in the Borgo neighborhood and this week, business is booming. The extra work has proven to be well worth the effort.

There is nothing better than gelato to beat the heat in the Eternal City. The ‘Holy Popes’ gelato is only offered for a limited time and is a tasty way to celebrate the canonizations.
